Download the vbr mp3 versions, more specifically- they sound much, much, better than the 64K versions. Also, when you load the files into iTunes, they already have song titles, etc in their metadata, so it's a lot less work for you.

More specifically, I normally download lossless files, then convert to WAVs since they have superior sound over mp3s (then Iburn to a CD). Does the iPod accept these type of files (WAV)?

just want to be sure.

Thanks for your help.

I've tried to download lossless to my Ipod and have not had any success,but I might not know what I'm doing.Really,the mp3's don't sound all that bad-I'm amazed at the sound quality of the Ipod!

i use itunes to burn songs onto my apple ipod. no problem with lossless files as far as i know. sounds great to me and can not really tell any quality difference when played as an mp3 on the ipod (although i am sure there is).
i even have a great 2nd set from 77 on my mobile phone just for sad novelty reasons.hasn't impressed a single person so far!

Here's my 2 cents:
I've been downloading the flc/shn and converting to apple lossless. It takes an extra step to convert to apple lossless, but it takes up half the amount of hd space.

The iPod will play .wav files, but as a post below suggests, converting them to Apple lossless will retain the sound quality and save space on your iPod, which will eventually matter to you. I'd go that way if you want to stick with lossless.
The problem another person had below is that iTunes will not play .shn or .flac files, so you need to convert them to .wav first.
If you haven't done so, at least give the vbr mp3's a shot with a show- I was a lossless fan as well until I did a side by side comparison and found that I couldn't tell a difference- it's ultimately less work to download the mp3's but not worthwhile if the loss of fidelity is going to bug you. If your ears are better than mine, though, lossless is the way to go.
